I think that creates the possibility where we accept that as a new norm, something that is wrong here in 2019 when it doesn’t have to be."

I too am concerned about the "new norm." As a community, we've not only tolerated this behavior but encouraged it by attracting drug addicts (and presumably drug sellers) to our city.
And the Blinders are starting to come of.
